“We are getting everyone aligned on a single focal point and focusing on our theme for the coming year. We’ve revised our habits to enroll our managers in our daily huddles on priorities, metrics and where we are stuck. We look forward to the entire company becoming aligned with our business strategy.”

- Christine Stopps,
Chief Financial Officer,YES Communities

“Wow, where to start. Mastering the Rockefeller Habits created profound and positive change inside our firm. It gave us clarity and a way of thinking about our top 3 priorities. It gave us a way of making decisions. I particularly love the leading vs., lagging indicators—our leading indicator is profit per employee.

We now have one-year and three-year goals, that we’ve turned those into quarterly plans to reach our targets. We started doing daily huddles and it’s really helped us keep on top of time sensitive deliverables. The word huddle is now in our vocabulary.”

- Robbin Phillips, President, Brains on Fire
